IMPROVED [Orders] Improvement of Order tab "work progress" for better visibility and filtering

This means, client having access o that view are now also able to filter and focus on the progress of specific languages inside that order, allowing them to check the status of a source-preparation task, of any translation into a particular target language, and so on.
